Entd.  —  Decision  —  £ 5. in full.

There is a Certificate annexed to this Man’s Memorial which induces some little Suspicion because he calls himself John ROBINSON & that Certificates [sic] speaks of him under the name of Jno. THOMPSON;

if we were certain of the Fraud of course we should reject the whole of his Claim but not being absolutely Certain we recommend the small Sum of 5 £ to be given to him which we mean to be in full for all his Losses.

Great Britain, Public Record Office, Audit Office, Class 12, Volume 99, folios 12–13.
